The fight between the WiMAX and LTE camp is heating up and WiMAX seems to be on the back burner according to wireless experts like Harald Braun and others.
This is an excerpt from a recent article in fact:
My take? LTE does have the inherent advantage of being provided by the equipment companies the carriers are familiar with and moreover it has the advantage of copying the best of WiMAX. Finally it gets the benefit of being pitched as an upgrade to existing equipment instead of rip and replace.
The battle isn’t over mind you — no — in fact it is just getting started. We all need to monitor the situation closely and one of the best ways to do this is to be part of the new 4G Wireless Evolution Conference held at the same time and place as ITEXPO in Miami February 2-4, 2009.
Carl Ford (pictured) and the team over at Crossfire Media hes been working hard with TMC to make the new 4G Wireless Evolution conference as great as it can be. Interest has been strong and to be honest I am pleasantly surprised to hear from vendors that carriers are looking to roll out LTE as soon as possible.
My team just sent this email out about the show and if you haven’t had a chance to peruse it, it is worth your investigation and I hope to see you at the show.
